, vice president biden ripped into the romney lot. >> in the last hours of this campaign, they have become truly desperate. >> chrysler said, quote, it was a leap that would being even difficult for a professional circus acrobat. that's the quote. by the way, i don't think they are acrobats. i think these guys are contorsoinists. >> governor romney is down by five points in ohio, according to the latest polls. for mr. romney, desperate times call for desperate measures and it doesn't matter how much the truth suffers. joining me now is pulitzer prize connie schultz. she writes today, why romly will lose ohio. hint, hint. and dana milbank, columnist for "the washington post." he's writing that romney goes off road with the truth. thanks for being here tonight. connie, let me start with you. you were born and raised in ohio with ties to the auto industry. >> yes. >> how are ohioans responding to this false attack by romney and ryan? >> that's what is interesting to me. i come from these people. i come from utility workers and auto plant workers and steel workers. i think romney thinks
will be there this weekend. jill biden and joe biden will make stops for president obama, not to mention all the money being spent on a last-minute blitz. the latest poll out of pennsylvania shows a tight race. three points within the margin of error, but can romney win it. john mccain made a final push like this on the sunday before the election in 2008 and he lost. the same plan and same result for george w. bush in 2004 and bob dole in 1996. >>> let's check out florida and that's where we find, long, long lines. some people waited in line as long as five hours to cast their early vote. today is the last day for early voting. we'll take you live to florida next hour. how close is the race there? take a look. this poll shows president obama with a slim slelead, 49-47. >>> both campaigns are finding some talking points to drive home their closing arguments. here it is. unemployment ticked up to 7.9% while the economy added 171,000 jobs in october. that's more than most expected. earlier, i spoke with bill gross who runs the world's biggest mutual fund pinco if these numbers are enough to move voters and the
't do that to himself. you're absolutely crazy. you're getting as bad as biden. >> now the acting, directing legend says it was an ad lib, which was obvious at the time. let's listen. >> i have to give john vioght a pat on the back. i was sitting with him and a couple other people talking about the economy. he said why doesn't anybody in hollywood ever speak up. i said he's right, we are kind of chicken. the chair idea, that came out of the air. i was sitting there and the guy behind the stage said here, you want to sit down? i said no, but take it out and set it next to the podium. he said you want to sit down? i said no, put it there. i said that's stupid, why did i do that. afterwards, people came out and said it was fun. >> there you have it. on a more serious note, he said he's not happy with how obama handled the attack in mbenga sa. >>> four days to go before the election, biden read the top ten good things about voting early. here are a few highlights. >> single, looking to mingle. find that special someone in the early voting. if you vote early, you don't have to pay taxe
with a recent poll showing president obama has an advantage. >>> meantime, vice president biden and mitt romney are in florida. not together, separately. romney's first in tampa, then coral gables and jacksonville. biden will be rallying in sarasota and later in ocala. president obama will stay off the campaign trail for another day. he will, instead, tour storm damage in new jersey. mitt romney is campaigning, but sensitively. it's less than a week before the election. how do candidates balance politics in the face of disaster? during a natural disaster. joining us now is thomas whalen, history professor at boston university, also offering commentary on the current campaign. thank you so much for being with us, thomas. >> my pleasure. >> there is a real danger p in how a president handles a natural disaster because it can sink a presidency, right? >> it could, potentially. what you're really talking about here is the political narrative people have about a particular candidate or president. a natural disaster, at least how presidents respond to them basically can reinforce or under d undermine
state and then he heads to ohio. >> and vice president biden has been out on the campaign trail and playing the role of the attack dog calling the romney campaign quote a lie. tell us about that. >> he is swinging against the add that says in part, quote sold chrysler to the italians who are going to build deep in ki china. now them is fighting words when you are campaigning in ohio. he is challenging the facts in that add. the words are are literally correct but mid leading. in the auto bail out president obama allowed for the company fial which is owned by the italians to buy chrysler. so that part is true. but, they are now making some jeeps in china for the chinese markets. the adds make it seem as though they ar are taking american job and moving them to china. the ceo of the company has said that is not true. bottom line, it shows how much that auto bail out helps president obama with the voters in ohio and iowa. among non college white men in those states is higher than the other states anderson. >> hum, hinting. appreciate that. i spoke about that earlier. what is your b
of ohio. the first lady will be here today, also jill biden will be campaigning here, and then some big-time entertainers, stevie wonder, will.i.am also here in the state and other battleground states. we hear that katy perry will be performing at one event supporting the president so a big push, a very hard push as we count down to election day. victor? >> dan lothian in ohio, thank you. >> long links and a close race. that about sums up the race in florida. this new nbc news/"wall street journal"/marist poll shows president obama with a two-point lead over mitt romney. that is well within the margin of victory, so basically we'll call it a dead heat, but when you go beyond the polls you see voters waiting for hours so they can cast their votes. there's been a lot of controversy over early voting in florida this year. it started a week ago and early voting ends day. our john zarella joins me now from plantation, florida. john, good morning. i understand that you voted yesterday. how long did you have to wait? >> reporter: yeah, you know, i did, and i'm really glad i voted yesterday bec
things to watch tonight and through the weekend, first lady, michelle obama, joe biden, also big ohio presence this weekend. president clinton on the democratic side doing a lot of campaigning. and tonight in ohio near cincinnati, romney, ryan, their families, and all their major surrogates, minus chris christie are going to be doing a big rally, john mccain, marco rubio, rob portman, one big rally in ohio and then spreading out. that's going to be a big event. and major surrogate action on both sides, nobody believing anything, as we like to say, on the field. >> and very interesting last thing about romney, two stops in new hampshire within the last three days, which is kind of fascinating given -- i mean, he's closing his campaign in new hampshire, but he's also going there on saturday. interesting that they think that those, what, five or four electoral votes could be really important for them. >> one other big piece of news this morning, president obama picked up the endorsement yesterday of new york city mayor michael bloomberg, citing superstorm sandy. the independent mayor wro
's 20 electoral votes. the obama campaign is not taking this sitting down. jill biden is coming to pennsylvania to campaign today. and one of the big guns on the obama side, the former president clinton will be campaigning here in pennsylvania on monday. fred, i got here last night. i turned on the tv watching the local news. a lot of campaign ads. you know what? in the final nine days of this campaign in pennsylvania, $10 million worth of ads. most of them from the romney campaign and its allies. they're outspending the obama campaign 2 to 1. fred, nobody, no republican has won pennsylvania since 1988 in a presidential contest. of course, the romney campaign thinks with the polls tightening up they have a chance. take a look at this. you mentioned the polg eed the . a four point advantage in the president. that is within the sampling area. president obama had a bigger lead here in pennsylvania just a few weeks ago. fred? >> so, paul, is that feeling that the ads have helped the mitt romney campaign kind of put themselves over the top or at least near the top? >> reporter: this
panetta. also secretary geithner updating the president on the financial markets, vice president biden, we're told, also on that call. based on the readout from the white house, the president got a sense of the coordination ongoing between the federal government, state, local officials. the president also promising that the federal government will continue to assist in any way possible. this comes in the wake of calls that the president has had with state governors and local officials overnight and the impacted areas, new jersey and new york, also declaration -- disaster declarations that were assigned for new york and new jersey and emergency declarations for additional states including virginia and west virginia. the situation remains fluid. unclear beyond wednesday when the president will be heading back out on the campaign trail. it's a critical time, days to go before election day, so the president, the campaign, they want to get back out to encourage early voting and perhaps try to deliver their closing arguments for those voters out there still undecided in those critical battlegrou
will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need, period." period? vice president joe biden was campaigning also in the sunshine state today. president obama returns to the campaign trail tomorrow. he plans to barnstorm seven battleground states over the next several days. but today, we did not see politics in action. what we saw was government in action. people with authority to make decisions. chris christie is not the first person, i think, that you would think of when you come to the, you know, arena of bipartisan cooperation. he is a mitt romney supporter and a fierce opponent of many democratic issues. for whatever reason, we saw a different chris christie with president obama today. this is what cooperation looks like. when the american people need government to work, these two elected officials became leaders, and are in lockstep with each other. about time, isn't it? things are getting done. so many politicians run for office saying that they are going to reach across the aisle when they get to washington, and they're going to get things done when they get elected.
obama here today. we saw joe biden here last week. but paul ryan was here yesterday. mitt romney will be here tomorrow. bill clinton last night and this morning. there is a lot of surrogate traffic and part of that is because early voting is under way right now and goes on through tomorrow. and both sides are really trying to energize people and get them out to the polls during this week. >> brianna, i'm looking behind you. just quickly peek over the back of your shoulder to your left, air force one just came right into a perfect view for us. thank you very much. but i want to ask you, this was a campaign stop in green bay that was really supposed to happen tuesday, which the president cancelled because of the storm and emergency work that he needed to do. so what did they do? did they go on with the event as scheduled and then add this one, or have they just rejigged the schedule? >> reporter: they sort of adjusted it a little bit. i think it was an evening event was the idea on tuesday. but for instance, charles woodson, who, yes, did make that very generous $100,000 donation -
parenthood. he should talk to big bird. he is gone. >> that was vice president joe biden earlier today taking aim at governor romney's vow to eliminate funding for planned parenthood. this year single ladies could play the deciding role, with 55 million of them eligible to vote. according to a recent pugh poll, president obama is whomping, i believe that's a technical term, mitt romney by 25 points among that group. in many respects, the election has become a choice between the past versus the future, a choice between a bygone era and a brave new world. joy reed explores this dynamic, writing it takes for granted that billy might have two moms or two dads, or that the ceo might be a she. it could care less if guys serve in the military. it can't imagine abortion or conservatives being illegal. i thinks madmen is a good tv show, but so is the walking dead. cecil richards is the president of planned parenthood. and today she is joining us behalf of the obama campaign. part of my favorite thing is how much i get to see you. thanks for joining the program, as always. >> thanks for having me back.
and wearing an outfit that kind of looked like a paper ballot, a ballot for her selection of the obama/biden ticket, and later on in the 4:00 eastern hour, when he arrives, we'll take that live. right now in richmond, virginia, republican vice presidential nominee paul ryan is speaking there. >> like that smart person over there or a redskins fan. we love this country. we've got serious problems in this country. that requires serious solutions. and in order to put serious solutions in place, you need to elect a leader. that's why in three days, we need to elect mitt romney the next president of the united states. you know, in the closing moments of the campaign, it's what you can see really what a campaign is all about at times. in these last hours, let me read you a quote from four years ago. if you don't have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare voters. if you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. you make a big election about small things. you remember who said that four years ago? you do remember. that's what barack
on with bill clinton? right now, for instance, they were still going to have clinton and biden events in youngstown this was supposed to be the second stop. there was a virginia stop that was going to be today, but this was sort of odd last night when the president left. and you wondered, well, what's he going to say this morning at this campaign event? you know, is he really going to go off on a romnesia riff? you know, so this doesn't surprise me at all. >> hey, chuck, a lot happening this past weekend. >> yeah. >> i don't even know where to start. the one thing, though, that you and i can probably agree on here is, it's hard to pick up trends. you see an ohio newspaper poll, oh, wait, okay. >> yeah. >> mitt romney is now even with the president. boy, the president's in a lot of trouble. and an hour later, "the washington post"/abc poll, wait, romney's down four. an hour later "the des moines register" decides they're going to endorse a republican since nixon. a minnesota poll that shows romney within the margin of error in minnesota. there are no trend lines here, are there? >> wel
poll shows a dead heat. and 49% of the independents go for president obama and joe biden, 47% go for governor romney and paul ryan. moderate voters who tend to live in the suburbs, many of them independents, 60% for the president to 38% for governor romney. if you're looking at this poll and thinking what is governor romney need to improve on in the final days? he probably needs to boost his numbers with independents if he wants to get over the top. i can tell you in talking and e-mailing with both campaigns today, wolf, they agree with our numbers. they would have it more of an exact tie as oppose today a statistical tie. that's why the candidates are back here so often. they view colorado as a dead heat and both need the nine electoral votes here. if you look at the path to 270, colorado would help both candidates greatly get to the finish line. >> as close as it appears to be, could be a long night counting the votes in colorado. john, thanks very much. a number of other swing state polls from other news organizations also show a very, very tight race. our chief political anal
